From the Cavern to the Capital of Culture.
By Paul Du Noyer
What makes 'the pool of life' so different?
Music is the heart of Liverpool. No other city in the world is as well known and loved for its vibrant musical history; nowhere else has produced more number one hit singles per capita. The city's past life as a sin-ridden seaport, raked by disaster, has given way to a town obsessed with entertainment, alive with excitement and possibility.
Paul Du Noyer takes us on a tour of the rich musical history of this uniquely creative yet notorious city, from the world-famous Cavern Club, host to the Beatles' debut performance, to the city's musical future. Featuring interviews with key figures, this acclaimed book reveals why Liverpool is not just a place where music happens: Liverpool is the reason why the music happens.
